Hi new scholars!

Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:

⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment

🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine

🔬 casually interested in and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

It's International Non-binary People's Day.
Non-binary and agender people should be legally recognised as their correct gender, or absence of gender. Gender neutral documentation should be provided and normalised. The UK government has failed to provide this.

covid-19, food 

The soup kitchen at my church used to feed 12 to 15 people once a week.

Now it's ~50 for lunch on Sunday and ~35 Tuesday night, all takeaway/low contact.

This is in addition to the food bank, which opens 4 days/week.

We've lost all hall lettings now, so our income to support this is a) online donations b) regular giving from a congregation of less than 20 people in a deprived area.

I'm hiring:

1) a lecturer (equiv. asst. prof.) in Design Research (0.7fte, 3,5 days/week)
ATTENTION: this lecturer must hold a PhD at the time of hiring.

2) a lab assistant who is well-versed in creative technologies (0.2fte, 1 day/week)

3) a studio assistant who is an empathetic "people-person" and can coach students in their design processes & team dynamics (0.4fte, 2 days/week)

Question for our medical peeps about COVID 

Since the antibodies disappear so quickly, how will the vaccine work?

I am not very up on the science

Do you want to moderate for ?

We expect moderators to - announce the presenter and read the blurb for their presentation, keep time of the presentations, kick out anyone who harasses the speaker or other participants, mute people until the Q&A, conclude the meeting (aka go 'ALRIGHT ITS DONE).

We will have sign ups coming soon.
Moderating is a great way to participate in this conference and to keep it a safe space.

Really really hope the jobs I have now will be there when my exams are over

Get pumped from we have presentations from things as diverse as patent law, poetry, the future of ice on Earth, and a slew of other amazing exciting presentations.

In the meantime, if you are interested in moderating, we will be putting out the ask soon!

why the fuck is "the maya mysteriously disappeared" like a thing you hear online in those pseudo science mystery channels??? like, we know where the Maya are, they're in Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize. there's like 6 million people who speak Mayan languages with a clear cultural continuity from like 900ad to modern day through the colonial period. they're right there, you can go talk to them, I'm sure some of them are lovely people

actually, does anyone have good resources on writing technical documentation? :boost_ok:
